Use Azcopy to copy files from on-prem to Managed Disk

Hi Team,

Is there a way to copy files from on premise server directly to Azure Managed disk ?
We can copy data to azure blob/file but then we need to move it again to managed disk, so is there a way to avoid it.
Also is it possible convert a blob to managed disk ?

It is possible to create an Azure Managed Disk from a VHD Blob:

Many thanks for your reply @LeonLaude
I had checked first article before, so Is it fair to assume that only thing that i can copy from on-prem to managed disk is VHD. We cant copy the files n folder directly to manage disk like we can do in blob\file storage.
